A Great Romance

The below is written as an Anniversary Letter/Card. It can be used for other occasions as well. Feel free to edit and use your own examples to make it more personal.



As I am driving to work I realize our typical chaotic morning had us both rushing out the door without wishing each other a happy anniversary.

I stop myself before picking up my cell phone to call you. Does he even remember? If I don’t call him, will I arrive home to dozens of red roses and chocolate or will he have forgotten?

I begin to dream of the amazing life I would lead if you were a true romantic. Flowers for no reason at all, fine chocolate mysteriously appearing on my pillow, weekend getaways to quaint cabins, week long trips to foreign cities that fill many women’s dreams, love letters, romantic dinners……...

As I continued to mentally watch my more romantic life, I couldn’t help but wonder, would this truly make me happy, increase my sense of fulfillment? . If my wish for you to be a true romantic came true how would my life be different?

Would I have missed watching you carefully tending to your newborn, holding her close, taking in her scent?

Would the new diamond necklace really mean as much as the family heirloom, worn thin over the years, that was given to me out of unabashed love?

Would I have missed watching you spend hours and hours helping your son perfect his batting stance and teaching him how to throw the perfect spiral?

Would we have been on a breathtaking beach hundreds of miles away when you received the phone call from your dad? Would you have been afraid too show your vulnerability? Too afraid to look at me and say “I need you. Will you go with me?”

Would I have missed Christmases with our extended families because we were too busy jetting off to fancy ski resorts?

Would I still remember every detail of the weekend we spent in the rustic mountain cabin, or would that memory be lost forever?

Would I have missed the pure joy on our daughter’s face when daddy went to school to have lunch with his princess?

Would I have arrived home to a bubble bath surrounded by candles instead of hearing the most loving simple sentence: “Honey, I’ll take care of the kids if you want to be with your mom.”

Would I have missed you showing me each day, in your own way, how much you love me? Would I have taken for granted all you do for me?

As I continue to reflect, I realize how blessed I am. The unromantic acts that are typically defined as “daily life” now seem much more romantic, and I realize that while we may not have the typical romantic relationship, we do have a great romance that some only dream of. Happy Anniversary.

I like this a lot...it's definitely the memories over the money any day of the week.

Thanks for stopping by. I thought I'd give you a snippet of the lyrics (no it doesn't make you old...I could hardly understand them either)
"The dark of the alley, the breaking of day,
The head while I'm driving, I'm driving.
Soft lips are open, knuckles are pale,
Feels like you're dying, you're drying
Just not as romantic as it could be...you know?
